During a recent weekend trip, I was able to take part in a guided tour of the new opera house at Nordfjordeid. It was opened in April this year, and is the only opera house in Norway besides the National Opera house in Oslo.
Being quite new, everything was of course spick and span, nice and functional. But what caught my eye and interest was this piece of art hanging just above the main entrance:
The installation consists of three circular pieces of glass positioned at right angles to each other, forming a sphere. The glass is covered with a transparent foil, which reflects the light in different colours on each side of the glass.
The combination of reflection and transparency gives the sphere an almost infinite array of colours when seen from different angles. It also changes as the light changes during the day.
The first photo of this post was taken from the top of the steps, but all the others were taken from different angles below.
It is fascinating, – a kaleidoscope of colours. It was difficult to choose only a few photos for this post.
I wonder if similar effects can be achieved in quilts by using Angelina fibers and sheers.
Hhhmmm, – something to think about.
